I dont have one on mine,I spent age's trying to decide which to go for but a few tuning company's told me not to bother as the standard set up work's more than good enough,but if you must have that throaty sound and look's under the bonnet go for it,but it can cause a loss of performance over all(but that's just what they say)im sure other's will disagree[^]

Std airbox, CAI pipe and green cotton filter. Put it this way, from just std box, no other changes, it made my clutch start sliping!! Big torque increase, nice and subtle, costs about ?50 all in including the panel filter!

I cant complain about my K&N induction kit, it had all the parts, good instructions and it sounds and performs good as well.

The turbo is more pronounced and the pick-up is slightly better!!

Euro car parts.

Wouldnt bother, better off with a Green Panel filter and drilling some of the air box, even sounds good, found performance worse with induction kit.....

Second that MrSean. I had a Carbonio on my 1.8T and when I was in the process of turning the car back to stock I had to put the stock airbox back on with a new filter - I was amazed at how the performance improved and can fully understand GaryM's figures when he did back-to-back testing with his Dynatwist and stock setup.

However when I had a Carbonio on my R32... Well... that was a different story [:D]

Indeed is not just a case of dense air, is as much about how fast it gets there! have used this method with 3 friends using Green Cotton Panel filter and drilled box and all agree with the results over an cai.....

?20.00 for an 1metre long 80mm diameter flexible intake pipe from Green.

?37.00 for a Green panel filter.

I wouldnt recommend anything else unless you also want that silly dumping noise.

You can get both items from Demon Tweaks, I did.

Our contact there for forum discounts is Dave Poole.

I'll see if I can find his details and update this post if successful.
